PLAY BY PLAY

The Kingdom are in Vegas!

Finally, after weeks and weeks of crying conspiracy, Matt Taven, TK O’Ryan and Vinnie Marseglia were granted their rematch for the ROH World Six Man Tag Championships! But it wasn’t because they were following the rules or earned it, it was because they attacked the “Hung Bucks” during the 16th Anniversary Show!

Taven speaks, saying that he “is not a man that likes to repeat himself.” But there is a Kingdom Conspiracy in ROH! The 16th Anniversary Show proved as much, when Cody was allowed to bring his wife, a mascot and “a whole damn circus” ringside for their grudge match, but TK and Vinnie get banned! But the conspiracy ends now! Taven vows the Kingdom will get back the titles they never truly lost. “And there’s not a damn thing you can do about it!” But that’s when the Enforcer, Bully Ray, appears!

Bully walks to the ring, mic in hand, while the Kingdom makes a fuss. Bully asks them, “Don’t you ever get tired of coming out here and complaining about a conspiracy?” There is NO conspiracy! Maybe the Kingdom just sucks! Fans agree, they chant “You Suck! You Suck!” at Taven, O’Ryan & Vinnie. Bully continues by saying this is all they do, they come out and complain and interfere in matches. They stick their nose in where it doesn’t belong, but it won’t get them anywhere. “Because you’re not needed at Supercard of Honor!” What’s he talking about? What word is Taven stuck on? Bully says that the Kingdom won’t have a match at Supercard! They won’t need to even show up in New Orleans!

Taven counters, The Kingdom deserves their rematch at Supercard! Bully says, “No.” Then who died and put Bully in charge? Since when can Bully make matches? And what makes Bully think the Kindom won’t show up anyway? Bully dares them to, because if they were really that tough, they’d “come get some” right now! The Kingdom huddles up to discuss, but Bully mocks them as being “three bodies, one brain.” He repeats that they’ll not be on Supercard of Honor, neither the PPV nor the building, nor even here tonight! Bully says that if he could, he’d just fire them here and now! O’Ryan and Vinnie hold Taven back while Bully takes his leave. Will the Enforcer’s decision stand once the executives hear about it?

 

ROH recaps WOH Championship Tournament opening round action.

WOH’s Jenny Rose visited Stardom to take on Kagetsu, and fought her heart out only to succumb to the two-time Goddesses of Stardom tag team champion. Meanwhile, Kagetsu’s teammate, Hana Kimura, would go up against Sumie Sakai as part of the ROH 16th Anniversary Show. Unlike Kagetsu, this Goddess of Stardom would fall to Sumie’s superior experience. But then, Kagetsu appeared and helped Hana beat up Sumie after the match. Sumie beat one half of the Goddesses of Stardom tag championship team, can she get the clean sweep in the quarterfinals?

 

WOH Championship Tournament, Quarterfinal Match: Kelly Klein VS Mandy Leon!

While the Gatekeeper is no longer undefeated, she is still the most dominant woman in the entire division. As for the Exotic Goddess, she has fought so hard just to make the WOH Division go from dream to reality. Now these pioneers of WOH fight to take one more step towards the Women of Honor Championship!

Mandy doesn’t even slow down for her entrance, she goes right into the ring to get in Kelly’s face. This is the first time these women have faced off, so while that means Mandy hasn’t defeated Kelly, Kelly hasn’t defeated Mandy. Who will prove themselves more worthy of the name, “Queen of Honor”?

Neither woman shakes hands for the Code of Honor, so the bell rings and Kelly slaps Mandy! Mandy slaps back, so Kelly slaps her back. They go back and forth, then Mandy ducks a punch to fire off chops and forearms. Kelly swings but misses again and Mandy gives more forearms. Kelly gets her with forearms, so Mandy kicks low. Mandy kicks Kelly to a knee, then gives more kicks and even a right hand, but runs right into Kelly’s pendulum backbreaker! Kelly doesn’t cover, she just toys with Mandy instead. The fans rally for Mandy as she drags herself up. Mandy throws a punch but Kelly puts her in a cravat. Kelly rams knees into Mandy, showing all the fans what she’s doing to the Exotic Goddess. She then snapmares and kicks Mandy in the back, covers, TWO.

Kelly keeps her cool as she shoves Mandy and toys with her again. Mandy hits back again, but Kelly clubs away on her back. Mandy hits and whips but Kelly reverses. Kelly runs in, big corner clothesline then a big back elbow and another clothesline. Kelly runs and boots Mandy down! Fans applaud while she looms over Mandy. A cocky cover, TWO, but Kelly keeps calm as she drags Mandy up into a chinlock. Fans rally again, and Mandy works her way up to her feet. Mandy fights back but Kelly wrangles her down with authority to then thrash Mandy in that sleeper hold. She shifts it to a neck wrench, clamping Mandy’s jaw, then shifts again into a chinlock. Kelly stretches Mandy against her knee, but Mandy stands up and turns around. Mandy throws a haymaker then ducks Kelly’s, only to miss in the corner.

Kelly runs in for a big body check, then slips out to the apron, but Mandy shoves her down! Mandy goes to the apron and takes aim, to hit Kelly with an apron cannonball!

The Exotic Goddess has the fans fired up while we go to break.

ROH returns to Mandy climbing up top. She aims at Kelly, and flies for the missile dropkick! Mandy fires up the fans while Kelly gets to a corner. Mandy runs in corner to corner for double knees! She scrapes her boot on Kelly’s face, then runs corner to corner again, but Kelly dodges to send her into buckles. Kelly brings Mandy out for clubbing forearms, then prepares a powerbomb, only for Mandy to lift Kelly up and into the Air Raid! Cover, ropebreak! Kelly couldn’t kick out, but that still frustrates Mandy. Mandy climbs up again, but Kelly bumps the ropes to wobble Mandy. Mandy fights Kelly off, but Kelly rushes right back to turn Mandy around. Kelly climbs up and the two fight each other. Kelly gets the edge, and picks Mandy up for a SUPER Fall Away Slam!

The fans applaud while both women are down. Mandy gets herself to the opposite corner but Kelly doesn’t stir. A ten count begins and reaches 5 before either woman heads for each other. They’re still crawling at 7 but start brawling at 8. Back and forth with forearms, Kelly and Mandy then grab hair and stand up for more heavy hits. Mandy backs Kelly down to a corner and rams shoulder after shoulder in! She kicks and sets up Kelly’s leg on the ropes to kick away at the inner thigh. Mandy then grabs that leg, trips Kelly and wrenches the knee. Kelly endures as Mandy digs an elbow into the joint, but Kelly uses that for a dragon sleeper and half bodyscissors.

Mandy is nowhere near ropes, but she manages to pop out of the bodyscissors and rolls around and around until she pops out of the sleeper. She goes after Kelly’s legs, rolls her over and drags her up by her hair to club away on the back. Mandy gets Kelly into the pumphandle, for Astral Projection!

Cover, TWO!? Mandy’s best move, yet Kelly survives? Mandy drags Kelly back up to finish this, and works to put Kelly in the Havana Dreams, her submission! Kelly endures this standing Muta Lock, and sneaks a tap-out where the ref isn’t looking! Mandy knows Kelly is tapping so she lets go, but the match doesn’t end! The referee is confused, which confuses Mandy. Kelly grins to herself, she got away with it. And then she attacks Mandy with a kick, snap suplex, and float over to the guillotine!

Mandy is stuck again, flailing but fading, the ref calls it!

Winner: Kelly Klein, by referee decision

The Gatekeeper uses guile and treachery to cheat the Goddess of ROH out of her dream! Kelly joins Tenille Dashwood, who won at the ROH 16th Anniversary Show. Who will Kelly face after the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and the Icon of Stardom, Mayu Iwatani, do battle next week on ROH TV?

 

Jay Lethal speaks.

“April 7th, in New Orleans, it’s already signed, sealed and delivered.” The Franchise is ready to capture another title in ROH, and that is of course, the World Tag Team Championships. The Briscoes hold those titles, and they’re one of the greatest tag teams in the world, which is why Lethal needs a partner who isn’t just great but “a frickin’ rockstar”! Lethal is speaking of none other than NJPW’s Ace, Hiroshi Tanahashi!

Lethal hopes the Once in a Century Talent will show up in New Orleans for this amazing match! And should Tanahashi appear, can these two incredible singles competitors manage to defeat #DemBoyz at what they do best?

 

ROH looks back at the Las Vegas Street Fight at the 16th Anniversary Show.

Frankie Kazarian was bloody, Hangman Page was handcuffed, but that wasn’t all. Christopher Daniels made Nick Jackson watch as Scorpio Sky choked his brother, Matt, with a kendo stick and Kaz tortured Matt’s back with a Boston Crab. Matt couldn’t endure the pain, so he tapped out, crowning SoCal Uncensored the new ROH World Six Man Tag Champions!

SoCal Uncensored now speaks on their victory.

The Addiction told Scorpio Sky to trust them, and he did. They stood together and the result was becoming champion. Kaz says that with the countdown to Final Battle still on their contracts, ROH can be “damn sure” SCU will do whatever it takes to keep the titles. They’ll “throw caution to the wind”, then into a grave and bury it. Will Daniels, Kazarian & Sky reign all the way to their last day in the company?

 

The Boys w/ Dalton Castle VS Hangman Page & Marty Scurll!

Whether or not The Bullet Club is fine, what is certain is that the Problem Solver and Villain won’t allow themselves to lose to Dalton Castle’s sidekicks. But wait, is Scurll not dressed to compete? He’s set to challenge The Peacock for the ROH World Championship, but is he backing out of this match?

Castle joins commentary while the fans chant “Woop Woop!” for Scurll. It seems Scurll will compete, but he doesn’t take the Boys seriously enough to worry about his attire. He starts with the darker haired Boy 2 at the bell. Scurll takes off his watches and jacket and hands that to Hangman to then roll up his sleeves. He trash talks Boy 2, then tags out to Page. Page grins, enjoying his pal’s jocularity. Scurll starts a chant of “Hangman! Hangman!” and even Hangman doesn’t take Boy 2 seriously. He wants to give Boy 2 a chance, in a test of strength. Fans chant “Test of Strength! Test of Strength!” and Boy 2 agrees to the challenge.

Hangman and Boy 2 tie up, and Hangman “suffers” the double wristlock. He just grins and stands back up, to rock Boy 2 with a forearm. Bullet Club toys with the Boys while we go to break.

ROH returns to the Boys in control of the ring. Hangman and Scurll regroup, then Hangman rushes in to beat up both Boys. He boots Boy 1 down then shoves Boy 2 into the corner and then another. Hangman runs in but Boy 2 dodges, Boy 1 returns and runs in, only for Hangman to shove his leaping splash away. Boy 2 runs in but his headscissors is blocked int a buckle bump! Castle complains that Scurll isn’t taking this seriously. Not just because the Boys aren’t to be underestimated, but because Scurll needs to stay sharp for when he faces Castle. Hangman drags Boy 2 up and with fans cheering, tags in Scurll. Scurll fires the fans up more, to then tag Hangman back in. However, while Hangman questions Scurll’s motives, the Boys pull off Twin Magic!

Boy 1 waits for Hangman, and gets the small package! TWO, but Boy 1 runs to springboard for a crossbody. Hangman catches and throws Boy 1 but Boy 1 springs back up to chop and forearm Hangman. Boy 1 whips Hangman but Hangman reverses, then catches Boy 1 as he tries to go up and over. He puts Boy 1 on the apron but Boy 1 swing kicks, then flies for a missile dropkick! The fans rally with the Boys as Boy 2 joins his brother. They double whip but Hangman blocks to fight back with heavy hands and elbows. Scurll paces outside the ring to approach commentary while Hangman whips Boy 2.

Boy 2 tries to tilt-o-whirl into a DDT but Hangman blocks with power. Hangman tosses Boy 2 up to rock him with a right hand on the way down. Scurll and Castle trash talk while Hangman throws Boy 1 out. Boy 1 slips back in as Hangman slingshots out, but then Hangman slingshots back in for the Buck Shot!

Cover, Bullet Club wins!

Winners: Page & Scurll, Page pins

Despite Castle’s confidence is his Boys and Scurll’s arrogance about himself, Bullet Club wins with just Hangman doing all the work. Scurll is so confident in himself that he takes the title belt and holds it up as if it were alraedy his own.

Hangman builds momentum towards his match with Kota Ibushi, but does this really give Scurll momentum towards his ROH WHC match with The Peacock at Supercard of Honor?

 

Silas Young and Kenny King brawl backstage!

The Last Real Man and K I N G of Sin City still aren’t through with each other, even after King took back the ROH World Television Championship at the 16th Anniversary Show. Silas puts King into the door and then clubs him in the back, but ROH cuts away in order to restore order.

 

The Briscoes speak.

“Do you know who we are?” They’re the ROH World Tag Team Champions, and on Supercard of Honor Weekend, “the professional wrestling universe is gonna converge on New Orleans.” Matches, spectacle, but the conversation will be about the beating #DemBoyz give Lethal & Tanahashi! Two of the best singles competitors are going into a tag team match with the best tag team! Will the Franchise & the Ace survive when it’s Sandy Fork VS Everybody?

 

ROH returns, but that brawl continues?!

Silas Young knocks Kenny King out onto the stage, but Kenny turns things around with a boot! Silas tumbles down the ramp and to ringside, but Kenny won’t let it end there. Security tries to stop them but get knocked down for their troubles. Kenny and Silas continue to throw hands on each other, so more security comes out, only to get the same! Silas throws one guard into Kenny to slow him down, so that he can club away on the World TV Champion more. Security regroups and drags Silas away while keeping Kenny back. Referees come out to do the same, but this isn’t cooling down so easily.

Bully Ray comes out while Silas takes a mic. “What the Hell, Bully?!” They saw what happened at 16th Anniversary, Silas got screwed! Give him his rematch! Kenny doesn’t seem to mind, so Bully lets him say it himself! “You can’t beat me in this ring, you’re not tougher than I am, and you damn sure ain’t a better man than I am!” Kenny is sick of Silas’s fake tough guy image, so it’s time for a LAST MAN STANDING! Silas may dominate that match type, but Kenny asks how Silas is gonna stand up, after Kenny breaks both his legs!? Kenny leaves while glaring down Silas, who will be the last real man standing after their match?

 

Scorpio Sky VS Flip Gordon!

The Captain and the Closer were on the same side once, until Scorpio ditched Flip for The Addiction. Scorpio then attacked Flip seemingly at random, and now Flip wants to get even with the man who stabbed him in the back.

Scorpio offers the Code of Honor handshake, but Flip’s been tricked by handshakes too many times in the past. The bell rings, and Flip thrusts a kick, but Scorpio narrowly avoids it. Scorpio kicks but Flip blocks it, then fakes the right hand to snapmare and run. Scorpio ducks under that kick to roll Flip, but Flip rolls through to dropkick Scorpio. Flip kip-up and fans applaud, but Scorpio knees low to club Flip stiffly across the back. Scorpio runs, but Flip follows to run him over with a shoulder. Flip’s back slows him down a little but he gets moving again, to handstand walk over Scorpio. Scorpio kicks at an arm but Flip avoids it by standing on one hand, then gets Scorpio with the headscissor throw! Scorpio slips out of the ring and fans chant for “Flip! Flip!” as he builds speed, and FLIES!

He takes out Scorpio and the fans keep chanting “Flip! Flip!” while we go to break.

ROH returns once more, to Flip going for the Four-Fif-Knee, but Scorpio rolls out of the way so Flip lands on his feet. Flip runs but Scorpio puts him on the apron, Flip kicks Scorpio back. Scorpio disrupts the springboard, then boots Flip off the ropes. He snapmares and scrapes Flip’s face, then kicks him in the back. Flip writhes while Scorpio walks around. Scorpio slaps Flip, Flip slaps back! Scorpio drags Flip up and into a corner, and unloads boxing body shots! The referee counts, Scorpio backs off at 4 to embrace the heat. Flip hits back but Scorpio keeps him down. Scorpio whips Flip out and back in, then gives a big leaping shoulder tackle! Cover, TWO, but Scorpio keeps his cool.

The fans rally for Flip while Scorpio stands up and kicks Flip back down. Scorpio looms but Flip chops away! Scorpio puts Flip in a corner but Flip elbows and boots his way out. Flip hops up then jumps over, but runs into the waistlock. Flip fights out and rallies on Scorpio, runs and fakes Scorpio out, for the elevated 619! Scorpio goes down and fans fire up. Flip climbs up top and takes aim, but has to jump over Scorpio. He still turns Scorpio around for fireman’s carry, but Scorpio slips out and shoves Flip to ropes. Flip uses that to springboard up and over, for the Springblade!

Scorpio is down again, but here comes Daniels!

Daniels argues with the referee, but naturally this is a distraction for Kazarian’s sneak attack!

Kaz then back suplexes Flip, but Flip slips out! Flip dumps Kaz out, then gets Scorpio in the victory roll pin! Flip wins!

Winner: Gordon, by pinfall

But he doesn’t get to enjoy it, because The Addiction rushes him at the bell! The SoCal Uncensored group together to stomp out and beat up Flip. But just like before, The Young Bucks make the save!

Matt & Nick Jackson run the SCU off again, and the fans cheer them on. The SCU remind the Bucks who have the ROH Six Man titles, and Flip is just as confused as he was the last time this happened. The fans chant “All In! All In!” as the Bucks look at Flip. Matt again offers a handshake.

The fans want him to accept it, but Flip is hesitant. He sees the SCU watching, and goes to leave, but then stops, to go back and accept it!

The SCU can’t believe it, and even Nick looks surprised. Matt won’t let go of the handshake, though. Not to mess with Flip, but to give him a hug!

Again, Nick is rather surprised by this. But he does applaud, proud of his brother for making a new friend. And wait, Bully Ray reappears!

The Enforcer says, “it’s about damn time.” This is an interesting mix here. Bully gives Flip credit for enduring the ribbing and testing, and did it the old school way of taking it like a champ to then earn his spot in ROH. The fans chant for Flip while Bully continues to say, “Three of you and three of you.” And there’s no match for these six at Supercard of Honor just yet. Bully thinks Flip and the Bucks would make an interesting trio, and the ROH World Six Man Tag Champions need contenders. “So why don’t we do this?” Supercard of Honor: SoCal Uncensored VS The Bucks & Flip Gordon, and to make it more interesting, in a Ladder Match! Can this unlikely friendship help Flip & The Bucks cut SCU’s reign short?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A real fun episode this close to Supercard. Bully seems to be making an interesting turn, as far as his role in ROH’s administration. He insisted he didn’t want to be a General Manager, but he’s doing General Manager things like making matches. Or rather, unmaking them, as he says the Kingdom won’t be getting their ROH World Six Man title match at Supercard, even though ROH executives apparently said they would. However, fans seem okay with screwing over Heels, so no one is changing alignments. I do expect the Kingdom to double down on being Heel to get their match, though. Bully does do some other great stuff, like helping Silas and Kenny King create their newest grudge match, that Last Man Standing Match will be really good.

Great announcement for the ROH World Tag Team Championships, Lethal & Tanahashi is a great team, and I doubt there will be dysfunction to tear them apart. If those two don’t defeat the Briscoes, it’s because the Briscoes will use Heel tactics of distraction. The WOH Championship Tournament match tonight was great, definitely a step up from some of the other ROH VS ROH matches. Kelly Klein was brilliant in that hidden tap-out, she is THE Heel in the division right now. And though they were recaps, I did like the story of the top right bracket, showing us the relationship of Stardom’s Oeda Tai even as Heels to soften up Sumie before the next round. With Tenille into the next round already, she’s gotta be one of the finalists, and probably taking on Klein to prove whether or not she deserves to be in ROH.

There is so much great stuff going on with The Bullet Club, even on top of their “Bullet Club is (not) Fine” story. Hangman basically won a handicap match against The Boys since Scurll was just there to troll Castle. At the same time, Castle teams with Kenny King to go up against the Briscoes. The Briscoes will use that to prove they can beat two talented singles wrestlers, but I bet either Scurll or Silas will show up to screw over Castle & King “just days before” Supercard. Then the main event, Flip VS Scorpio, great stuff and great for Flip to get a win for himself. The closing segment was even better, as Flip is no longer a target for Bullet Club to bully. The Six Man Ladder Match for the titles could go either way, and could add more wrinkles to the Bullet Club story.

My Score: 8.5/10

PLAY BY PLAY

WWE and Raw dedicate the episode to Bruno Sammartino.

To honor the life of the Hall of Fame “Living Legend”, a moment of silence with ten tolls of the bell. Bruno was truly one of the greats, if not THE greatest. He will be missed.

 

The Beast comes to St. Louis!

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are both back on Raw for episode 1300! The Advocate waits for the boos to die down before he speaks for the “still reigning, defending, undisputed” Universal Champion. Heyman supposes people are raining down their anger because they assume Heyman will gloat. They must think he’s here to say “We Told You So!” Or that they’re here to talk like they did when Lesnar conquered The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania Streak, or when Lesnar took Cena to #SuplexSuplexSuplexCity, or when Lesnar takes out every “wannabe tough guy who doesn’t understand” that “this is real” or that no one in the locker room stands any more of a chance than members of the WWE Universe. Heyman doesn’t give predictions, he gives spoilers, and “Lesnar does not gloat, Brock Lesnar conquers!”

But Heyman gloats! Heyman gloats that Lesnar used non-PG elbows to bust Roman open and then took Roman Reigns to Suplex City, used multiple F5’s, and left Roman a heap of trash at the biggest Wrestlemania of all time! “And none of this means anything to Brock Lesnar.” Lesnar does not dwell on the past, even when we’re only talking a couple weeks. Lesnar looks to the future, especially when that future is this Friday, in Saudi Arabia, at the Greatest Royal Rumble, craving to be in a UFC fight, goes to be “locked inside of a cage with Roman Reigns.” Heyman notices the fans genuinely cheering for Roman.

But being in a cage wasn’t Roman’s idea, so Heyman tells the world: “Brock Lesnar pinned Roman Reigns, WWE had no choice”, so now Lesnar signed a “big fat contract” that he earned, but WWE wants the title at #GRR. What does Lesnar say to that? “Well, Roman Reigns is breathing, give me Roman Reigns.” Lesnar wanted a fight for the title, in a cage! The odds are stacked against Roman even more now than at Wrestlemania! So here’s the spoiler: Roman steps into the greatest cage fighter ever, so this Friday, Lesnar will “shred Roman Reigns, piece by piece, limb from limb”! Roman will only return to America in boxes as a former WWE superstar and just another victim! But speaking of, here comes Roman!

The Big Dog stares right down at Lesnar. Lesnar simply chuckles back at him, shaking his head. Lesnar thinks Roman doesn’t want any of him, but Roman marches down the ramp to prove him wrong. The WWE Universe is itching to see these two fight, and Lesnar seems pleasantly surprised to see Roman getting into the ring. Roman has a mic, but he takes a moment to stare at the title. Lesnar notices him staring at it, and taunts him with it. Roman says Heyman is right, he isn’t sure how he’s getting back. But he knows this: “I’m coming home with that title. And you can believe that.” He drops the mic, and takes his leave. This fight will happen Friday in Arabia and a cage. Can the Big Dog finally best The Beast?

 

“Ladies and Gentlemen: Elias.”

The Drifter is in St. Louis, but he’s immediately interrupted!

Elias VS Bobby Roode!

The GLORIOUS One interrupts, wanting the spotlight on him over The Drifter. Will Roode make good on his first 1v1 match on Raw? Or will Elias make him pay and #DriftAway for the interruption?

The bell rings, the two tie up, and Elias puts on a headlock. Roode powers out but Elias runs him over. Elias speeds things up but Roode runs him over with an elbow. Roode chops Elias in a corner, then stomps and chops again. Roode chops Elias, Elias forearms back then chops, too. Elias puts Roode in a corner but Roode turns that around for another chop. Roode whips corner to corner but Elias reverses, only to run into Roode’s elbow. Roode goes up but has to jump over Elias, legs buckling a bit. He still gets Elias with the atomic drop and dropkick, cover, TWO.

Roode keeps on Elias with the armlock, bringing him to the mat. Elias works his way up, Roode wrenches the arm. Roode wrenches the arm again but Elias rocks him with a right! The Drifter chops Roode against ropes then whips, but Roode goes for the DDT. Elias gets away so Roode clotheslines him out. GLORIOUS Pose as we go to break.

Raw returns, and Elias puts Roode in a corner. Roode ducks the forearm to chop Elias again. Elias is reeling from that shot, so Roode gives him another. Roode whips but Elias kicks him back to then club him in the back. Elias throws Roode into a post! The referee checks on Roode while Elias catches his breath. Elias sits Roode up for a nerve hold, we go picture in picture to plug the Greatest Royal Rumble’s Casket Match of Rusev VS The UNDERTAKER. Roode endures the hold and works his way up to his feet. He hits Elias but Elias hits back so it’s a brawl now. Elias gets Roode in a corner and stomps a mudhole into him! He tops it off with a running stomp, then rams Roode’s chest into the apron edges. He adds a running knee to the head, covers, TWO.

Elias grows frustrated but he keeps on Roode. He mocks GLORIOUS while wrapping Roode into a chinlock. Fans rally for Roode and Roode powers up. Elias wrangles him down but Roode stands again. Elias brings Roode down again, but fans chant for Roode. Roode gets a second wind and back suplexes Elias down! Both men are down, but stirring. Roode gets to a corner while Elias walks over. Elias swings but Roode counters, then chops and whips. Elias reverses but Roode runs him over. Roode rallies with forearms and a corner clothesline into a neckbreaker. Roode’s firing up with the fans while he climbs up top. He takes aim and flying clothesline takes down Elias!

Roode winds it up for GLORIOUS Pose! He kicks but Elias back drops, sunset flip, TWO! Elias knees low and puts Roode in a corner, but Roode knees him away. He hops up, GLORIOUS Blockbuster! Elias rolls out to prevent the cover, which fans boo and jeer. Roode doesn’t care, he goes out to fetch Elias. He puts Elias in the ring but Elias hotshots ROode off the top and rolls him up, Elias wins!

Winner: Elias, by pinfall

The Drifter was crafty with that performance, and he ruins Roode’s first 1v1 match. Will Elias truly put on a spectacular performance in the 50-Man Royal Rumble match? Or will Roode turn things around and make this Friday the most GLORIOUS Royal Rumble ever?

 

WOKEN Matt Hardy speaks.

“I have spoken to the Oracle”, and the future is clear. They will PROCURE the Raw Tag Team Championships! But first, they must visit the Wasteland. Bray Wyatt says that without darkness, there is no light. And together, this WOKEN Yin-Yang will cast a shadow that covers the world. “RUN!”

 

The Ascension VS WOKEN Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt!

Konnor & Viktor are back on Raw thanks to the Superstar Shake-Up, but now they must face the #DeleterOfWorlds just days before the Expedition of Gold takes on The Bar for the Raw Tag Team Championships. Will they be rendered OBSOLETE already?

The bell rings and Hardy starts against Viktor. They tie up, Viktor gets the headlock but Hardy powers out. Hardy sees Viktor’s cartwheel, and says that was WONDERFUL~!

The fans and Wyatt agree, but then Viktor swings on Hardy. Bray scares Viktor, Hardy hits the Russian leg sweep. Hardy then tags in Brya, and together they hit Viktor with the leg drop and back senton. Bray goes for the yurinagi but viktor slips out. Viktor tags in Konnor, who clubs Brya, but then runs into the turn-around lariat! Bray tags in Hardy and feeds Konnor to the boots. Hardy says “DELETE! DELETE!” but Konnor denies the twist. Viktor tags in and the Ascension mug Hardy in their corner.

Viktor tags Konnor back in and they mug Hardy with combination strikes. Konnor drops a big elbow and covers, TWO. Tag to Viktor for a first drop and cover, TWO. Viktor keeps Hardy down while fans rally, and Hardy uses a jawbreaker to break out. Tag to Bray, and Bray rallies on Viktor with palm strikes and uppercuts. Bray wipes Konnor out then runs Viktor over with the body check! Bray prepares his Spider-Walk! Tag to Hardy and a feed to the Side Effect, TWO. “DELETE! DELETE!” Hardy brings Viktor up but Konnor saves him. Bray gets Konnor with Sister Abigail! Hardy tags him in, and brings Viktor up, they combine for a draping Twist of Fate! Cover, #DeleterOfWorlds win!

Winners: WOKEN Hardy & Bray Wyatt, Wyatt pinning

The Yin-Yang of WOKEN & Wyatt comes for the titles, as do The Bar, though The Bar is no longer on Raw. Will Cesaro & Sheamus be DELETED in Arabia? Or will they be responsible for robbing the Red Roster of their tag titles?

 

It’s the premiere of The Sami & Kevin Show!

The Underdog and Prizefighter sit at their brand new desk to introduce the WWE Universe to their talk show. The new hottest maybe-weekly show in WWE, because “a huge void” was created when The Miz was moved to SmackDown. But who better to step up than these two? And who better in history than one of them to win the Greatest Royal Rumble? Why is it called that? The seven titles on the line. Nope. Lana gave Rusev permission to take on the Undertaker. Nope. That they’re going to win the Rumble. Yep! So make sure you have the day off to watch Sami & Kevin prove themselves the most dominant of all the WWE superstars. Watch them prove why Stephanie McMahon chose them to be the “crown jewels” of Raw.

Those comments probably rub their guest the wrong way. But tonight is about new beginnings, so they have a song for their guest. “You Suck! You Suck!” Yes, that’s for the Olympic Gold Medalist and Raw General Manager, Kurt Angle!

At least when the fans sing it, they mean it nicely. Angle joins Kevin & Sami in the ring, but they realize they don’t have a chair for him. Kevin produces a lawn chair from under the desk. “Nothing but the finest, boss.” But to get to business, how was their song? Don’t quit your day jobs, boys. Kevin understands Angle is a bit bitter, things got off on the wrong foot. And Kevin would be uncomfortable if his boss had his manhood in a jar. But they’re just poking fun. Sami & Kevin note the “outright conspiracy” they just finished with on SmackDown, which is why they took matters into their own hands. Or in Kevin’s case, own head, when he headbutted THE Vince McMahon down.

But then, either Stephanie either really appreciates their talent, or really dislikes Angle. Angle doesn’t blame Stephanie for being bitter, because he’s the reason Ronda Rousey injured Stephanie’s arm. Kevin and Sami caution Angle not to speak out of turn, he has his kids to worry about. All five of them. No, all six. It isn’t five? Sami checks his notes. Oh right, he forgot Jason Jordan. Though, so did Angle. But enough about the past, on to the future. Tonight, Angle will give Sami & Kevin the opportunities to maximize their potential. What’s that gonna look like? Angle “appreciates” the treatment and will repay them with something at the Greatest Royal Rumble. Because Angle and Daniel Bryan will both be in the 50-Man Royal Rumble, and Chris Jericho! And just about everyone else these two “endeared” themselves towards.

But for tonight, Kevin & Sami take on Bobby Lashley & Braun Strowman! The Alpha Male and the Monster Among Men are going to take on the #YEPMovement! Will the first episode of the Sami & Kevin Show be the last?

 

Seth Rollins encounters The Miztourage backstage.

Bo Dallas & Curt Axel know they said good-bye to Miz and hello to their futures. They’re going to #BURNITDOWN with Rollins! He’s going to be their new leader in a NEW Shield! So long as they have the Architect.

Rollins admits they’re on the right track, but it’s gonna be a hard “no”. Will Bo & Axel find what they need to keep riding high?

 

Titus Worldwide VS Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre!

After not only rejecting their proposal but also steamrolling them in a blindside attack, The Show-Off and the Scottish Stud take on The Real Deal and his top client in a tag match for revenge. Can Titus & Apollo #MakeItAWin against the returning duo after how well Ziggler & McIntyre worked together last week?

The bell rings and Ziggler starts with Titus. Titus puts Ziggler right into a corner, and he chops and stomps away. Tag to Apollo and Titus feeds Ziggler to Apollo’s clothesline. Apollo hits the standing moonsault, TWO, but he keeps on Ziggler. He shoves Ziggler but Ziggler holds ropes. McIntyre tags in and Ziggler runs Apollo over. The Celtic Colossus brings Apollo up for chops in the corner, then furious right hands. McIntyre tosses Apollo across the way, then counters the boot with a back elbow. Ziggler tags in while McIntyre carries Apollo in the inverted Alabama Slam. Ziggler SUPERKICKS Apollo before the whiplash slam! McIntyre blasts Titus down just because, then Ziggler tags him back in. They bring Apollo up, CLAYMORE ZIG ZAG!! Cover, Dolph & Drew win!

Winners: Ziggler & McIntyre, McIntyre pinning

The Show-Off and Stud win their first match together, and with an aggressive dominance rarely seen.

In-ring interview with the winners.

Both men showed up last week, and Ziggler said things would be different. Why did he bring McIntyre with him? Everyone can tell why! Day one, no one watched Ziggler’s back, but McIntyre has his back now. McIntyre is dangerous, and he speaks for himself by saying that they’re both dangerous to a “soft” locker room with no fire or ambition. It makes him sick! These two are what superstars look like, speak, and back up their words. Trust McIntyre when he says times are changing, and though he’s not what WWE wants, he’s the reality check it needs! “We don’t give a damn about stealing the show, because this right here IS the show!” Ziggler & McIntyre look to turn the heat up on everyone in the WWE, who will be next to get that reality check?

 

Kurt Angle likes what he sees from Ziggler & McIntyre.

But he’s visited by Chad Gable, another Shake-Up addition. He won’t disappoint Angle, and Angle knows that. How’s Jason? Getting better, but this trade was for Gable as a singles competitor. Gable agrees, he will scratch and claw– Mahal interrupts to protest last week’s last-minute title match. And then Jeff Hardy goes to SmackDown!? But Mahal vows to get that title back, so he insists he goes back to SmackDown when it happens. That latter part isn’t happening. Mahal threatens calling Stephanie, but Gable says Mahal should learn respect. Mahal recognizes Gable, he’s the little boy who won with Strowman at Wrestlemania. Gable shoves, but Angle keeps the peace and says they settle this in the ring! Gable is ready, and so is the Modern Day Maharaja.

 

Chad Gable VS Jinder Mahal w/ Sunil Singh!

Just days before the “former and future” United States Champion takes on Jeff Hardy, he looks to tune up with the Olympic medalist newly added to Raw. Will he show his strength before taking on the Charismatic Enigma in Arabia? But before even the bell, Sunil distracts so that Mahal can blindside Gable off the steps!

The Maharaja grins as he drags Gable up and throws him into the barriers! Mahal does not respect Gable as he puts him in the ring, then stomps a Maharaja mudhole into him. The referee backs him off to check on Gable, then reprimands Mahal for his actions. Gable won’t let this stop him, he wants the match to happen. The bell rings, and Gable dodges Mahal to fire back. Mahal shoves him but Gable comes right back for a big takedown. Gable gets the waistlock but Mahal pushes him off to then kick him right in the face!

Mahal looms over Gable as he drags him up. He toys with Gable while fans cheer. Mahal lifts but Gable crossbodies to counter! Cover, TWO, but Mahal gets dumped out of the ring. Gable goes to the outside but Mahal runs him over. Mahal is in control while we go to break.

Raw returns, and Mahal still controls Gable with a half clutch. Fans rally and Gable works his way out. Mahal brings him back down to a knee, but Gable keeps scratching and clawing his way up. Gable fights back but Mahal knees low to then suplex Gable over. Cover, TWO, but Mahal keeps on him with clubbing ax handles and stomps. Fans cheer Gable and Gable fires back with forearms. Gable runs but into a big lariat from Mahal! Mahal drags Gable back up to whip him hard into a corner! He gives Gable crossface punches and elbows, then puts him in a chinlock. Gable endures and fights his way up again as fans cheer. Gable throws body shots but runs into a big elbow.

Mahal drags Gable over and chokes him on the ropes. Mahal backs off at the ref’s count, then drops springboard knees on Gable’s chest. But Gable boots Mahal away! Gable rallies and hits the rolling kick! Gable goes after the leg with knee wrench after knee wrench, then a dragon screw. He yanks and stretches Mahal’s leg, and Sunil panics. Gable kicks that leg but Mahal knees back. Mahal lifts Gable but Gable fights out. Mahal bucks Gable off and hotshots him on the rope, to then hit a running knee! Fans boo while Mahal grins and stalks Gable. He wants his finish but Gable blocks and uses corners to roll back into a cover! GABLE WINS!

Winner: Gable, by pinfall

The Maharaja is furious but he is now the loser in Gable’s biggest victory! If Gable can #ScratchAndClaw like this, will he one day be wrestling for a singles championship?

 

Backstage interview with The Riott Squad.

Sarah Logan, Liv Morgan & Ruby Riott made an impact by interrupting Bayley VS Sasha Banks. Are they sending a message to those two? It wasn’t just for the “frenemies” but all of Raw’s Women’s Division. The Squad aren’t here to be role models, but to disrupt. Sarah knows scared animals are easy prey, and right now, the Raw Women’s Division is full of scared animals. And if anyone gets in their way, they get the same treatment. They’re “equal opportunity agitators”, and like a can of tear gas, the Squad will make everyone drop to their knees, crying and begging for help. “Just the way we like it.”

 

Samoa Joe speaks.

Though no longer part of Raw, he and Roman Reigns will still have a match at Backlash. The Samoan Destroyer heard Roman Reigns vow to return to America as Universal Champion. He has his own prediction: he might not even have an opponent at Backlash. Joe knows that as history shows, Lesnar will conquer The Big Dog and bury him in the desert. If Roman does become the champion, will Samoa Joe simply take that belt from him shortly after?

 

The Miztourage talk to someone.

They know what you’re thinking: Miz is on SmackDown, but so were the Good Brothers. Therefore, the NEW Balor Club can be with them! Finn wasn’t thinking this. But, this would be #TooSweet!

Right? Right? Thanks, but no thanks. And don’t do the hand thing. Strike two for Bo & Axel, but is the third time the charm?

 

Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn VS Bobby Lashley & Braun Strowman!

As usual for the #YEPMovement, they’ve put their foots in their mouths, and now they must make their Raw 2v2 debut against two massive stars! Can Sami & Kevin survive a match with the Dominator and Abominable Strowman?

Fans chant “Get These Hands!” as all four men enter the ring. Kevin & Sami talk it out, and they both escape the clutches of Lashley and Strowman. They talk it out again, but end up flanked on both sides, so they escape into the ring. Sami & Kevin are extremely wary, and time it so that they slip out as Strowman and Lashley enter, only to fall for Strowman’s & Lashley’s trick. Strowman grabs them both, throws Sami into a barrier then feeds Kevin to Lashley! Lashley spins Kevin around into a neckbreaker, then hits a corner clothesline. He keeps moving, giving Kevin a big spinebuster! Fans are all fired up for the duo of dangerous individuals. Lashley rocks Kevin with a right hand then a shoudler tackle in the corner. He drives elbows into Kevin, then grinds a boot into him. Sami protests but Kevin can’t get away.

Lashley keeps on Kevin, whips him to ropes, but Kevin kicks him away. Kevin drags Lashley to his corner and Sami tags in. Sami throws hands on Lashley, mocking him before giving a chop. Lashley hits back, then snap suplexes Sami down. Cover, ONE, but Lashley keeps on Sami in a corner with back elbows. Lashley runs corner to corner but into a boot! Sami brings Lashley back over and Kevin tags in, and now Kevin throws hands. Kevin mugs Lashley in the corner, then tags Sami back in.

They both whip Lashley but Lashley kicks Sami and throws Kevin out. Lashley lifts Sami up onto his shoulder, snake eyes on a buckle. Lashley runs and crossbodies, TWO. Sami scurries to a corner but gets a shoulder tackle from Lashley. Lashley runs but Kevin holds the ropes down to dump Lashley out! Kevin adds a back senton, he and Sami are in control while we go to break.

Raw returns to Sami bumping Lashley off buckles and giving him a sharp chop. Sami chops again, taunting Bruan as he walks across the way. Sami runs back at Lashley, but into Lashley’s belly2belly suplex! Both men are down but crawling for their corners, hot tag to Kevin and he stomps Lashley before he tags Strowman! Kevin throws hands and stomps, and goes for the back senton, but Lashley’s knees meet him. Kevin tags in Sami, and now Sami stops Lashley from tagging Strowman. Sami puts Lashley in a chinlock, but Lashley carries Sami on his back. Sami brings Lashley to his knees, but Lashley powers out with a sidewalk slam!

Both men are down again, fans are at a fever pitch, but Kevin trips up Strowman! Lashley can’t tag out, but that only pissed Strowman off. Strowman stomps his way back to the apron, Lashley fights out of the enemy corner, and hot tag to Strowman! The Monster hops down and runs around the corners to bulldoze Kevin!

Then he gets in the ring to do the same to Sami! And then he hits Kevin again! And Sami, again! Strowman won’t stop, he goes after Kevin with a dropkick! The fans are thunderous for the Monster Among Men, but Sami bails and runs away, except Lashley catches up to him. Lashley brings Sami back and feeds him to Strowman for a big clubbing forearm. Strowman clotheslines Sami in the corner, and fans chant “Get These Hands!”

Sami finds himself trapped, Strowman tags Lashley in before tossing Sami. Lashley brings Sami up, for the delayed suplex slam!

Tag back to Strowman, and Strowman gives a thumbs down. He drags Sami up onto his shoulder, for the MONSTER SLAM! Cover, Strowman & Lashley win!

Winners: Lashley & Strowman win, Strowman pinning

Dominant and destructive, Lashley and Strowman dismantle Kevin & Sami. For the sake of ever having a chance at winning, everyone else in the Raw Tag Team Division better hope these two don’t stay a team.

 

Baron Corbin VS No Way Jose!

The Lone Wolf makes his Raw debut after the Superstar Shake-Up, will it bring the #EndofDays to the Fighting Fiesta already?

Corbin speaks. “C’mon, man. You didn’t think I would see through your little plan?” The conga line is just an excuse to have back-up to jump him. He knows Jose just wants to have fun, but Corbin’s idea of fun is ruining other people’s fun. He is on Raw to be a champion, so Jose isn’t even on his level. This match won’t happen so long as Jose has that “group of freaks” with him.

No Contest

Corbin leaves, but Jose responds. “Just because Baron Corbin doesn’t want us to have fun doesn’t mean the party has to stop!” Hit the music! The conga line starts up again, but as it reaches the ramp, Corbin returns to ambush Jose!

The Lone Wolf ignores the boos and jeers as he kicks Jose while he’s down. Corbin even puts Jose into the LED wall face first. He boots Jose down again, then embraces the heat as he hits Jose with a choke slam backbreaker! Corbin ruins the fun like he promised, but will it earn him opportunities like he wants?

 

Alexa Bliss brings us a Public Service Announcement.

The Goddess of Raw says “Bullies thrive on silence.” If you see someone bullying someone else, speak up. It’s not worth staying silent. Alexa remembers hanging out with Nia Jax back when they were friends, and this “sweet old homeless lady” approached them. The woman was starving, so Alexa gave her food. But Nia took the food away and ate it all down. Alexa will never forget the look of horror on that woman’s face, or the sounds of Nia laughing and chewing, while Alexa stood there and did nothing. She’ll have to live with that for the rest of her life. Alexa wants Nia Jax’s teammates to stand up in tonight’s main event, and Alexa can finish it at Backlash when she gets the title back. “And this has been, your Moment of Bliss.” Will anyone really fall for Alexa’s blatant lies?

 

The Miztourage VS Finn Balor & Seth Rollins!

The Extraordinary Man and the Architect both rejected the ideas of teaming with Bo Dallas & Curt Axel, so now they’ll have to team up together to beat them in the ring. However, Finn and Rollins will be opponents Friday in the Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match, joined by The Miz and Samoa Joe of SmackDown. Can Finn & Rollins keep on the same page to then work to keep the IC Title on Raw?

Finn and Bo start and circle. They tie up, Bo gets the headlock, but Finn powers out, only for Bo to run him over. Bo gloats while Finn stands up. Bo tags Axel with a “Shield fist bump”, and Axel circles with Finn. They tie up, headlock but Finn powers out again, only for Axel to run him over, too. Axel puts up Too Sweets now, then ties up with Finn again. Finn gets a waistlock but Axel elbows out. Axel whips Finn but Finn reverses, Axel sunset flips but Finn rolls through to dropkick Axel. Cover, TWO, and Finn wrenches Axel’s arm. Bo distracts Finn and Axel forearms him down. Axel clubs Finn at the ropes and chokes him, then tags Bo for Bo to drop a knee. Cover, TWO, so Bo drops more knees. Cover, TWO, so Bo puts Finn in the chinlock.

Fans rally for Finn, as does Rollins, and Finn stands up. Bo wrangles him back down to the mat, but Finn endures the squeeze. Finn stands up and reaches for Rollins, but has to jawbreaker Bo first. Bo shoves Finn and rocks him with a forearm on the rebound, but Finn gets Bo with the Pele! Both men go down, fans rally, and hot tags to Rollins and Axel. Rollins springboards to clothesline Axel, then keeps going, slingblade! Rollins throws Axel into Bo, then clotheslines Axel out. The Miztourage regroups but Rollins builds speed to DIVE!

Rollins takes out Axel and gets him back into the ring. He kicks Axel from a corner then hops up for the blockbuster. Rollins keeps going as the fans fire up, stomping the mat to “Burn It Down!” Bo runs in, but into Rollins’ SUPERKICK! Axel kicks low but Rollins rejects the Perfect Plex to mule kick and CURB STOMP! Tag to Finn, Finn climbs up while Rollins slingshots onto Bo! Finn takes aim at Axel, COUP DE GRACE! Cover, Balor & Rollins win!

Winners: Balor & Rollins, Balor pinning

With the Miztourage taken care of, these two can now focus on THE Miz and Samoa Joe in Saudi Arabia. Four stars compete for one title in a Ladder Match, who will climb up to bring that title back to the states?

 

Natalya gives a pep talk to “her” team.

 

The Queen of Harts is ready to teach the Riott Squad, as well as Alexa Bliss and Mickie James, a lesson for being bullies. Ember adds that they’ll leave those five looking over their shoulders. Nia says mocking her is bad for your health. But the not-so best friends are a bit tense around each other still. Will there be dysfunction or victory for this team of five?

 

10 Woman Tag: The Riott Squad, Alexa Bliss & Mickie James VS Bayley, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Ember Moon & Natalya!

Just as there was a star-studded 10-Man tag last week, this week brings us the best of the Raw Women’s Division. Will the Goddess and her new best friend work well with Ruby, Liv & Sarah to defeat the Huggable One, Legit Boss, Irresistible Force, Prophecy of Flame and Queen of Harts?

The teams sort out and Liv starts against Sasha. Liv mocks Sasha before dodging her and tagging in Sarah. Liv and Sarah club away on Sasha, then #CountryStrong grinds her forearms into Sasha’s face. Fans boo and jeer while the Squad applauds. Sarah knees Sasha but Sasha kicks back. Sasha runs in but is put on the apron, but she still knees Sarah down to then swing in with wrecking ball meteora! Cover, ONE, but Sasha keeps on Sarah with an armlock. Sarah stands up and fights out, then tags Liv back in. Sarah stomps on Sasha, then Liv whips her to an open corner. Sasha boots Liv away but Liv Matrix leans under, only for Sasha to get her on the return. She sits Liv down and slaps her down, covers, ONE.

Sasha wrenches Liv’s arm and brings her over to tag in Ember. Ember takes Liv and wrenches her onto the mat. Cover, ONE, but Ember whips Liv into a corner. Ember handsprings for a heavy forearm, then springboards for the crossbody. Cover, TWO, and Liv rolls out of the ring. The Squad goes over but Ember beats them to Liv with a DIVE!

Sarah & Ruby try to save Liv, but the War Goddess and her team have control while we go to break.

Raw returns and now Sarah is in control of Sasha. Fans rally but Sarah trips up Sasha to keep on top of her with that cobra clutch. Sasha endures the thrashing while the fans rally, and she wills herself up. She fights out but Sarah catches her just short of the tag. Sarah hammers on Sasha but it’s Mickie who tags in. Mickie stomps and grinds a boot into Sasha, then drags her out for another chinlock. Fans keep the rally going, we go picture in picture for another Greatest Royal Rumble commercial advertising the rematch of Lesnar VS Reigns. Sasha feeds off fan energy and jawbreakers out again, only to run into Mickie’s knee. Mickie puts Sasha back in the chinlock, but fans won’t stop rallying for Sasha.

Sasha fights out again, but Mickie knees low. Mickie whips Sasha corner to corner, but Sasha goes up and over. She tumbles to her corner but Mickie stops her short. Sasha rocks Mickie with a right, and tags in Natty! Natty rallies with a discus clothesline, the more clotheslines. Snap suplex to Mickie, then another! Natty keeps going, snapmare and runs on Mickie to dropkick her down. She even gets the takedown into the Sharpshooter! Mickie endures the legendary hold, reaching for ropes, but Sarah chop blocks Natty down!

Natty lets go of the hold and the referee checks on her, but Mickie gets away to her corner for safety. Natty wills herself up even on a bad leg, and she tags out to Bayley, but Mickie still kicks Natty down! Bayley and the others show concern, and the referee calls for medics.

The action continues and Mickie tags out to Ruby, but Bayley is ready for her! Bayley rallies with a back suplex, then whips. Ruby holds ropes and breaks free, to hit Bayley with an STO! Cover, TWO, but Ruby puts Bayley into a chinlock. Medics check on Natty’s knee while fans rally for Bayley. Mickie talks trash about Natty staying on SmackDown, but Bayley fights her way up and out. Ruby hops on to be a backpack, but Bayley just backs her into the corner. Nia tags in, Bayley throws Rub off and Nia throws Ruby all around. She squashes Ruby in a corner, then lifts her up to throw her down!

Nia drops the leg, all the others break the cover! Chaos ensues and no one is left in the ring. Nia gets an idea, MAJOR apron splash!! All the women of Raw are down!!

Micke recovers first, and helps fan off Alexa. Natty manages to stand on the other end, but Mickie pounces with another dropkick! Mickie has some strange vendetta with Natty as she stomps and stomps, so here comes RONDA!! Rowdy Rousey scares Mickie off, but then Mickie attacks HER from behind! That’s a mistake, seeing how Ronda glares at her.

Mickie tries to smile it off, but Ronda is upon her! Ronda puts Mickie in the armbar, Mickie taps, but this match ends because of interference.

Disqualification; Riott Squad, Alexa & Mickie win

Though Natty’s team loses, Ronda is the winner in the end as she makes Mickie pay for what she did to Natty. Ronda helps Natty to the back, will the Queen of Harts be able to recover from what Mickie did to her?

 


 

My Thoughts:

This first Raw after the Shake-Up was pretty good, even with it also being a go-home to Greatest Royal Rumble. The opening tribute to Bruno was perfect, and it’s great they already have a Network special to go right after Raw. Heyman gives another good promo while Roman keeps it very short and sweet, though perhaps a bit shoe-horned in. Roode not giving Elias even time to introduce himself was brilliant, but then it was somewhat logical Elias would win the match. It’s a good move to have a program between these two to tide themselves over while the IC and US titles work themselves out. We obviously know The Ascension are never being a winning tag team again.

For that matter, there was a lot more tag team stuff tonight than usual, I almost feel like Raw could become the Tag Team show while both singles titles go to SmackDown. SmackDown gave them Breezango and The Ascension, and then with Ziggler & McIntyre winning, as well as Kevin & Sami, the Raw Tag Team Division is bigger than usual But I don’t think WWE would really do that, so each show is gonna have one of the mid-card belts. I just can’t be sure if Raw keeps the IC and SmackDown the US, or they trade. Speaking of Kevin & Sami, their match with Lashley & Strowman was great, even when Sami & Kevin lose. Lashley’s a beast, Strowman’s truly a monster, and one way or another, both of them should be holding gold by the time we get to SummerSlam.

Gable also proves he’s capable of a singles title run with his match against Mahal. If IC and US titles swap, Gable could be first in line to take that US title from Mahal, unless titles trade back with Backlash. Corbin is still Corbin, even on Raw. Like Roode and Elias, a Corbin-Jose program can help to tide them over until we’re past Backlash. The Miztourage searching for a new leader is interesting, and can have all kinds of possibilities with the end result. Personally, I want Bo to join Bray down the line.

And the Women’s 5v5 tag was really good, and it seems if it isn’t Absolution VS Natty & Ronda, it’ll be Mickie and Alexa(?) in their place. I’m sure Nia will retain at Backlash to move on to Sasha, Bayley or even Ember. Though, even with the addition of Ronda, this tag match shows Raw’s half of the Women’s Division is still shallow, hopefully they get more women in the next round of call-ups.

My Score: 8.5/10

Eli Drake and Scott Steiner vs LAX (Impact Tag Team Championship Match):

They now have to refocus and get ready to defend their titles. Eli Drake makes his way to the ring and debuts a new theme song. Scott Steiner makes his way to the ring for the match.

LAX begins their double team maneuvers for maximum impact but Steiner stops them in their tracks and hit a overhead suplex on Santana. Steiner sets Santana up on the top rope and hits a frankensteiner. Scott tries to lock in the Steiner recliner but Ortiz comes back in and breaks it up.

MLW Fusion Ratings & Review: 4/20/18

Published

on

Major League Wrestling, makes it’s television debut! Tony Schiavone is back everyone! Friday Nights at 8pm we get to toggle between Tony Schiavone and Jim Ross again. MLW and NJPW aren’t WCW and WWF, but it’s pretty close to 1998 again.

Either way, MLW makes it’s debut, and they decided to give us two long matches, with four well known wrestlers. Production value is like a combination of WrestleCircus and ROH, but the bright whites of the rope and mat really help the presentation pop.

So how about I shut up, and just get to the what happened?

 

Austin Aries vs ACH

Now to kick off, I never realized ACH says he hails from the Planet Vegeta, that popped me for the Dragon Ball reference.Either way, we have two very well known Cruiserweights, and this is the kick off match.

When the match starts we see ACH has the right side of his ribs and his right upper thigh taped up. Aries and ACH shake hands to kick things off, and honestly, Aries never really tries to exploit the injured areas.

This match was the longest match of the night, and the two put on a clinic. ACH was hampered slightly because of his injuries, but both men got all of this signature moves in. Schiavone kept jumping at the opportunity to call the 450 Splash, and when ACH finally did it, he was met with Aries’ knees.

After a Horns of Aries submission and the Discus Fivearm, Aries finally puts away ACH with the Brainbuster.

If this is a precursor for how they’re going to pace out their shows, anyone who loves quality wrestling, will enjoy this program.

Winner: Austin Aries via Brainbuster

Rating: *** 3/4

 

Jimmy Havoc promo, basically talking about how fans love blood, referencing Dusty Rhodes and Steve Corino. Informs everyone that he will bring the violence.

 

Chico Adams vs Barrington Hughes

Aside from learning his nickname is Caramel Colossus, we’re not given enough time for much. Hughes dispatches of this wannabe Chico, immediately with an Urange.

His outfit is bright and flashy, and he’s like a more well spoken Sexual Chocolate. Barrington will probably makes some big waves in the near future.

Winner: Barrington Hughes via Urange

Rating: N/A (Squash Match)

 

#1 Contender Match: Rey Fenix vs Pentagon w/ Salina de la Renta

We’ve seen both of these men go at it a few times, and we’ll see it again on Sunday. Funnily enough, the 3 competitors in Redemption, were on this show.

This match is almost as long at the Aries match, but a much different feel. They move to the outside fairly early, and spend a lot of time out there. Multiple crowd interaction spots, Pentagon getting them to chant ‘Uno Mas’ and he even borrowed a fans’ hat.

However, even though the fan interaction helped to keep everyone on their feet, it started a few awkward spots. A Frankensteiner into the crowd was slow and awkward because they fell into a bunch of fans and chairs. Shortly there after, Fenix tried to spring up and do a Spanish Fly, but that looked bad.

Yes, yes, I’m nit picking, but those couple small things close to each other, and a commercial break, kinda hurt the flow of a match that has two of the best in the world.

Pentagon ends up putting it together following a Powerbomb Backbreaker, his Bone Collector maneuver, capped off with the Fear Factor. Which gives Pentagon the opportunity against Shane Strickland for a rematch from WrestleCircus: Raise the Curtain.

Winner: Pentagon via Fear Factor

Rating: *** 1/4

 

Even though Tony Schiavone gave us the “we’re out of time”, from the WCW days, there was more if you stayed tuned in. The show technically ended with a video package hyping the Jimmy Havoc vs Shane Strickland match next week.

All in all, it was an impressive debut. Two very good matches, a few intriguing video packages and an up and coming beast in Barrington Hughes. MLW is off to a good start, and of course, I’m a huge fan of hearing Schiavone again.
